Pile it On!!!!!







Pile it On is having a DT call. Their challenge this week is "spring." My goal was to go through all of the challenges that I am aware of and try to make a card that really "piled it on!" I started with the Moving Along with the Times sketch and the Creative Inspirations' challenge of 3 flowers, 2 dp, and 1 ribbon. I decided to make this card bright and cheery and sunny with butterflies and flowers to represent spring. I stamped my image with Versamark and heat embossed it with a bright glittery embossing powder. I next cut out my image and embossed it using a nestie and my CB. After it was cut out, I paper pierced it and then faux stitched it using a marker and glitter pen. I then layered it all together with the ribbon and added my flowers, bling, buttons, and a butterfly sticker. Finally I stamped on my encouraging sentiment....SMILE!
My hope is that PILE IT ON will see that I am up to the challenge of creating a card with a theme and then really piling on other challenges.

This card was truly inspired by ALL of these challenges, as they were all in my mind as I created the card.

Pile it On - spring
Practical Scrappers - floss, fibers, ribbon
Little Red Wagon - dry embossing
Flutter by Wednesday - open with butterfly
Penny's Paper - anything goes
For Fun Challenges - make an encouraging card
Stampavie - butterflies
Creative Belli - die cut shapes
Your Next Stamp - stitching
Pixie Cottage - buttons
Cute Card Thursday - touchy feely
Paper Play - stickers
Stampin B's - sun and encouraging sentiment
Meljen's Designs - add 3-d elements
Crafty Ann's - let the sunshine in
Stamp Something - something layered
All Sorts - stitching
Corrosive Challenge - paper piercing
Paper Sundaes - card with no people
Creative Inspirations - 3 flowers, 2 dp, 1 ribbon
